GSC Game World Closing?

Ukranews has a story (in Russian) reporting GSC Game World is closing down, saying founder and CEO Sergei Grigorovich attributed this to personal reasons, which are not disclosed. Word is employees will be paid through February. NeoGAF has a story on this that seems to handle the article better than our machine translation, saying it mentions unconfirmed speculation that Grigorovich was not happy with progress on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, and that there was danger that Ukrainian law enforcement would seize the company and its assets. There's also a post on The Ascian Gaming Blog with some leaked screenshots and concept art from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the planned first-person shooter sequel with a now-cloudy future. They also have a link to a tweet they say confirms GDC's closure (it translates to "GSC Closed"), though Dmitri Bourkovski, who tweeted that, subsequently clarifies: "To everyone reading this because of #GSC & #stalker2 news - I have no connection to GSC and I'm not Sergei Grigorovich (CEO of GSC). Cheers!" Thanks Joao.

Parts of SoC were the best moments I've experienced in gaming. Delving into sealed-off bunkers or suddenly encountering snorks in the middle of the night with only a few bullets left was... An experience.

At the same time I feel that the series could have been so much more after two sequels. In CoP it felt a bit like they were going on rails, and the voice acting was getting on my nerves. "Spill the beans", anyone? It was good, but not great, and the game engine peculiarities started to seep through the cracks and kill the atmosphere somewhat.

I sure hope someone carries on this tradition of intelligent fps gaming, which is a rarity.
